5. E-Media Fast

Here are the official ground rules for the first annual E-Media Fast.  Practice run: Starting today at 5:00 PM the challenge begins.  The practice run will end at 6:00 am tomorrow morning. So for the next several hours you will not enjoy the “benefits” of the following:

  • Television
  • Radio
  • Computer
  • Internet
  • Ipod (or any music player)
  • Any handheld computer
  • Game consoles (xbox, xbox360, Atari 2600, Pong, PS2, Intellivision, ColecoVision, etc.)
  • Portable game players
  • Cell phones (You may only use your cell phone to talk to your parents—anyone else and you have failed the challenge.)


You may access the computer to take care of all school-related responsibilities.  Also, tonight only feel free to email me any questions you may have.  Other questions can be answered tomorrow at school.

We are playing by the HONOR CODE.  I am operating under the assumption that all of you will be truthful throughout this experience.

I expect everyone to give this challenge a shot.  No opting out… Really guys, have fun with this.  Let’s try and get back to reading books, writing, engaging in outdoor activities, talking to each other…If only for a little while.  The TV, Internet, video games, etc. will still be there waiting on tomorrow night.
